The Flash Stand-Alone Movie Won't Be Racing Into Theaters Anytime Soon

The Flash's solo movie has been one of the projects that's suffered through several delays. It's unknown if Clemons will return for The Flash, or if the character will be recast. But studio sources confirmed Monday that a finish line in 2021 was not the target they had hoped for - the best-case scenario had been a March 2019 start-date for filming but that proved too impractical due to scheduling conflicts.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. has once again pushed back the release of The Flash in part because of scripting issues. Problem is, Miller is also tied up in another Warner Bros. product: the Harry Potter-related Fantastic Beasts series, in which he plays eerily pale "Obscurial" Credence Barebone. The second film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is releasing next month and is building up considerable hype. The studio has two highly promising projects on the docket in James Wan's Aquaman and the cheery-looking Shazam!, not to mention the Chris Pine's Track Pants-a-palooza known as Wonder Woman 84 in November 2019.

The Flash film, which still does not now have a title, has gone through quite an array of evolutions since the DC Extended Universe's origins.


As for the Flash movie, we still don't know what it's about.

Following the box office disappointment of "Justice League", Warner Bros. has been reevaluating its approach to making movies based on DC Comics characters. A direction that still isn't clear to us yet. There have been rumors that his film would fully, or at least partially, adapt the 2011 comic book storyline Flashpoint, which later led to DC Comics rebooting with the New 52. Miller played the Flash/Barry Allen in Justice League and briefly appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, approximately a year and a half later, Seth Grahame-Smith, the movie's first director, dropped out due to creative differences, which kicked off the first of many obstacles for The Flash.
